Hello, sweethearters! Hope you're having a great day.

I've finally managed to make time for doing this article as I originally intended, I see a lot of people doing it so let me hop on that train (since I obviously don't have enough time to create original content).
I found this article:

so I decided to do it. I got into Dark Academia before I even knew about it, so you can say I actually found the perfect description for the aesthetic I pursue in life.

Let's go!

1. Are you going to learn Greek, Latin or French?

book, reading, and vintage image Temporarily removed
I learned Latin in highschool and I use it almost everyday to an extent because I'm a pharmacist, so we use it in a more specific way. But I do understand when I read in Latin. Also, I speak French cause I learned at school. I guess I'm left with Greek.

2. Will you drink coffee or tea as you read through old books?

flowers, tea, and aesthetic image tea, dark academia, and tarot image
I would have to say tea, as much as I like coffee. I would recommend that, if you read books before going to bed like I do, don't drink coffee. And with tea, you can choose from variety of flavors.

3. Running through dark, mysterious forests behind school at night or early morning walks around the school?

Temporarily removed nature, forest, and fog image
Oh. I choose dark, mysterious forests just because I don't see what the reason would be for walking casually around the school now that I'm done with it. But I do remember the sensation, especially in autumn and winter, the air around school feels so different and magical. I know you know what I'm talking about.

4. Would you read Kill Your Darlings or The Picture of Dorian Gray?

fashion, outfit, and photography image Image by jojo
I've read The Picture of Dorian Gray, I loved it and I often re-read some chapters cause it's fascinating, so I would love to read Kill Your Darlings since I haven't had the chance before. Kill Your Darlings is a novel by Terence Blacker.*

5. Would you read The Secret History or Dead Poets Society?

Temporarily removed Temporarily removed
The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I liked Dead Poets Societ, the movie, but it didn't really resonate with me.

6. All girls school, all boys school or school for everyone?

Oh for everyone, of course! Come on... And! If it was a magic school, it would be perfect.

7. Will you tell your friends about Oscar Wilde or Edgar Allan Poe?

Inspiring Image on We Heart It aesthetic, black, and dark image
Poe. Poe is so delightfully odd and I love his poems. I do like reading Wilde, but this time my choice is Poe.

8. Will you tell the rough truth or sweet lies about what happened last night?

hands, pale, and dark image aa, alternative, and black image
This questions slaps, cause I did have a secret "relationship" with this guy that I ended not long ago and I still think about it, and now that it's over, I told my friend everything. So the truth. And it was rough.

9. Will you prefer the sound of the crowded library (flipping pages, pencils meeting paper, soft whispers) or your shared dormitory at night (snoring, fire crackles, rain tapping against the window)?

rain, bed, and window image cozy image
Shared dormitory at night. I feel like this is the answer that mostly depends on your current state of mind rather than being a constant choice. Also I always choose rain over sunny weather.

10. Running in the rain or laying on grass in summer?

couple, city, and run image alternative, black, and dark image
Rain. Running in the rain. I've had enough of this summer, one of the worst in my life so far.

11. At night when they ask for scary stories, will you tell them true crime or urban legends?

bedtime, Fairies, and fairytale image aesthetic and dark image
Urban legends. They always leave you wondering about something otherwordly.

12. Will your old radio play classical or jazz?

aesthetic, music, and vintage image music and violin image
Classical all the way. I do not like jazz at all.

13. Will you take History or English class?

Temporarily removed angel, book, and vintage image
English. History is written by the victors, said Churchill.

14. Will you dance in the moonlight or play the piano softly?

piano, music, and aesthetic image piano, music, and lace image
Play piano. I don't really have a person to dance with, but I can always play piano alone. What a plan.

15. Will you prefer an old countryside manor or a big city house?

cottage, home, and house image Darkness, victorian house, and witchy image
An old countryside manor... but like, renovated. To keep the spirit but also make it sustainable. And a smaller one, I like cozy stuff.

16. In an empty classroom, will you solve equations on the blackboard or search for answers in an old forgotten book?

Temporarily removed book and dark academia image
I would probably do both actually. The nature of my profession. But if we were to talk about a different reality then I would rather search for answers in an old forgotten book.

17. Will you sit on a bench, in silence, with the person that you love, or go to the ball with this same person?

beautiful, benches, and kyoto image Inspiring Image on We Heart It
Sit on a bench with the person I love.

18. Will you write poetry or music?

dark academia, music, and piano image Image removed
Write music seems like something I could do, but I'm pretty sure I'm bad at both.

19. Will you go to a crowded reception or spend the night telling horror stories to your friends?

Temporarily removed art and painting image
Night with my friends, I guess but minus the horror stories, I'm not a fan.

20. Will you be a student at a boarding school in the countryside or in a prestigious university?

city, architecture, and building image Image by she》wolf
Prestigious university.

21. A quiet and desired solitude or a group of friends with whom to break the rule?

winter image sea, beach, and water image
Josh Billings said "Solitude is a good place to visit, but a poor place to stay". So even though I want to be left alone at this moment, when the storm passes I would like to have my friends break the rule with me.

22. Will you play Hamlet or Othello?

Hamlet all the way.

23. Will you pledge allegiance to the god of science or literature?

24. Will you be forced to abandon love for ambition or ambition for love?

photography and vintage image Temporarily removed
Knowing how attached I can get and how deeply I can fall in love, I'd probably abandon ambition for love.

25. Will you visit rainy London or gloomy Paris?

Temporarily removed dark, edit, and hipster image
London. Has the type of energy I like.

26. Will you play the piano or the violin?

piano, music, and photography image piano, music, and vintage image
Piano gang.

27. Will you study late at night or early in the morning?

lights, christmas, and winter image autumn, camping, and dark image
Late at night.

28. Will you be crazy about old novels or old movies?

29. Will you visit abandoned chapel or a hidden library at night?

Metal glasses though they're quite uncomfortable for me.

35. Will you prefer the sound of dead leaves crunching under the feet or the sun on your skin on a winter day?

Temporarily removed Temporarily removed
Crunchy autumn leaves, please!

36. Will you smoke a cigarette on the terrace of a café, reading the newspaper or drinking red wine at night, a violin in your hand?

Drinking red wine, violin in my hand.

37. Will you spend hours in a museum, starring at the same piece of art or typing an essay on a typewriter?

art, mona lisa, and museum image architecture, art, and gold image
Oh God, I would gladly spend hours in a museum. The thing with typewriters is that they are very satisfying but also, when you make a mistake and you kinda... correct it, it looks messy.

38. Will you wear your hair tied by a ribbon or braided?

black hair, hairstyle, and hair image aesthetic, bambi, and beauty image
I never had my hair tied by a ribbon, so I might as well try.

39. A hazy graveyard at dusk or a wild horse running in a field?

horse, animal, and nature image Temporarily removed
Wild horses running in a field is an incredible sight to behold.

40. Do you prefer a gothic style building (high windows, towers) or neoclassical (columns, sober)?

castle, dark, and architecture image aesthetic, architecture, and black image
Gothic architecture. The complexity is immense.

41. Will you meet the love of your life in between two shelves in the library or behind a chapel?

hands, aesthetic, and art image couple and vintage image
Library seems more probable to me.

42. Jane Austen or Henry James?

books, classics, and english image Temporarily removed
My girl Jane Austen of course!

43. Will you wear the portrait of your loved one as a medaillon or place one of their letters against your heart?

medaillon image shell, lace, and aesthetic image
Medaillon. It kinda makes a statement when you wear it.
